Lee’s presentation will be from 1:00PM-3:00PM.He will be providing training on Tall Bearded and Miniature Dwarf Bearded irises, just a few of the many varieties that he hybridizes. This is a wonderful way to learned about Irises. Members will be available to provide information and answer questions about growing irises.
On May 27th from 10:00 AM-12:00 PM. Lee will also be sharing his vast wealth of knowledge in a garden training session at the Graham’s garden located at 1750 8th Ave East, Twin Falls, Id. Lee Walker has been hybridizing Japanese and Spuria Iris since the mid-'80's. In 1989 he moved to the Tenmile area of Southern Oregon and established Twilight Iris Gardens. He has been developing a pollinating process that increases seed production in Tetraploid Japanese Iris, and for the last fifteen years he has worked on converting Diploid JIs to Tetraploid. Lee also hybridizes Miniature and Standard Dwarf Bearded, Intermediate Bearded, Tall Bearded Iris, Siberian Iris, Species crosses, Lilies, Day lilies and Gladiolus. Following the garden training the club will tour local gardens. If you have any questions please called Jeanette Graham at 208-734-3613.
